  • Synthesize results from the graphs and/or equations of functions;
  • Apply transformations to the graphs of functions;
  • Recognize the relationship between functions and their inverses graphically and algebraically;
  • Solve and apply rational, linear, polynomial, radical, absolute value, exponential, and logarithmic equations and solve linear, nonlinear, and absolute value inequalities;
  • Solve systems of equations and inequalities;
  • Apply techniques for finding zeros of polynomials and roots of equations;
  • Apply functions and other algebraic techniques to model real world STEM applications;
  • Analyze conics algebraically and graphically; and
  • Use formulas to find sums of finite and infinite series.
